you are allowed to be a masterpiece and a work in progress

If you care anything for home décor and design, then perhaps you have an HGTV addiction like I.  Each time Joanna Gaines does her reveal, I am amazed at the finished product.  How someone can see so much creativity in a boxed-in space always boggles my mind.  Also, I have enough Canadian content, that I would gratefully and willingly welcome any Property Brother to my home.  To the Scott brothers, and those designers who can turn older into something fabulous and new, I am accessible and ready for change.

Each of these shows takes something old down to the foundation, the good bones, and turns it into a vision of beauty. Respecting your story, and creating new objects to be admired from age, makes your home a sanctuary and a place of loving comfort.

In creating the heart of the home, reclaimed wood is highly desired. Focal walls that highlight the original markings and scars of use, hand-forged iron, and objects of inspiration and affection trigger great appreciation and gratitude.

I am a Fixer Upper too. The scratches, dents, and dings are a part of me that I reveal to those with whom I want to create deep relationships.  Some of my decorative elements are unique, quirky, and very DIY.  Antiques have been given another opportunity to be loved and treasured.  That is what I want too; don’t tell me that I am too old to understand. Rather, it is my experience and resilience through all types of construction that secure my foundation.

Changing perspective, removing the clutter, and adding a fresh coat of color help me to be more inviting and a gathering place for others.  Planting the roots deeply to add appeal to my personal landscape, I can see how much more work I want to do on the façade and beneath.

But, at the end of the day, appreciating the abundance I have received and seeing it in a new light, will help me to live happily ever after.  Or, at least until my next redesign.

writing is the painting of the voice

 

Realigning 26 letters over and over to cause the heart to beat faster, the head to nod in agreement, and the spirit to rise in joy of understanding, is a deep-driven desire that demands that we push ourselves past the point of fear into the abject torture of waiting for acknowledgement.

I am not one to beg for attention, I believe in myself enough to be confident in who I am and strive for more… achievement, success, confidence, empathy.  Yet, as solitary as my writing is, I want to inspire others to reach beyond their own confines of spirit.

We live in an age where clicks are the barometer of engagement.  Disturbing, conflicting, funny, topical, or inflammatory writing will get a reader’s hackles up.  But the attention span today has been measured at an average of seven seconds!

If you are still here, thank you for reading my posts or choosing to follow me, commenting to let me know your perspective – – whether consent or dissent – – and sharing with others those thoughts that make you feel enlightened or introspective.  I am so grateful and appreciative that you have chosen to hear what I have to say and it means more to me than you could know.
